Stage 2

Wilson Profile JGI Junior - Size Small

Official Review by Gabe and Mya

What a great couple months this has been!  Unfortunately the summer days are winding down for Michigan and the golf season is almost over.  On the bright side, The Lions are undefeated. I suppose I should post this draft before the weekend so my statement can be true, at least for a little while!  

Testing this Wilson Junior set has been an incredible opportunity and a great way to introduce my daughter to this wonderful game that I love.  On several occasions this summer, Mya has said “Dad, let's play golf”. If I got nothing else out of this experience, I would be extremely grateful for the time we have spent testing out these clubs. 

Most of our testing was completed either hitting balls in the backyard, on the driving range, or the practice green.  Due to Mya’s age (4) we only spent a little time on the actual golf course since she needed to learn how to hit a golf ball first.  

First and foremost, Mya can hit a golf ball.  I think that is the most important thing. Some shots are whiffs, some are worm burners and some are those pure strikes that keep us coming back for more.

Onto the review.

[See Stage 1 for individual photos of each club]

LOOKS: 18/20

Clubs all look good, shape is appropriate. I would have preferred a mallet for the putter.  Also I wish the putter had the same alignment aids on the grips that are present on the other clubs.

SOUND: 15/15

At 4 years old, Mya doesn't exactly have a consistent stroke to comment on the sound. Not gonna lie tho I took a rip at this tiny driver and it sounded just fine!

FEEL: 15/15

These aren't forged, they are for kids. Feel was 100% appropriate for what they are intended to do.

BASIC CHARACTERISTICS: 23/25

The ball only flies as straight as the stroke you put on it. These clubs are a great set for a child but again I'd wish for a mallet putter in this set. 

OVERALL: 15/15

These clubs absolutely are better than our starter set. These are appropriate for the intended age group And I feel with additional practice these clubs will not hold Mya back at all while she is learning the game.

TOTAL JUNIOR SCORE: 86/90

SPONSOR SCORE: 8.5/10

I think these clubs are a great fit for the intended age group and I would not have been disappointed if I purchased them.  From top to bottom this has been a good experience.  The clubs arrived well packed and Wilson did a great job putting together this set for kids.  There are 4 clubs in the set and its perfect for the beginning child. The price point is fair and the quality of the clubs is appropriate for the price point.  These clubs will easily last until Mya is big enough for the next size up.

FINAL SCORE 94.5/100

If I could change a couple small things about the set I would switch out the blade putter for a mallet.  Maybe it's because that is what I play and learned on but I think they are easier to line up for the beginner.  Also the clubs all have white lines on the grips which help with hand placement and alignment but the putter grip has no such markings.  Several times when trying out the clubs Mya asked “where do I put my hands”.

I enjoyed this process and I know that Mya did as well.  I’m looking forward to the years ahead when I can share more family time on the course.  These clubs will last Mya at least 4 years when she will likely need to upgrade to the next size.  When that time comes I’ll have no issue picking up the next Wilson Golf Junior set.

Wilson Profile Junior Set Official MGS Forum Review by Deejaid and Layla- Stage 2

 

 

 

 

After Layla was selected and received her Wilson Profile clubs it was time to ditch the old cut-down wedge and putter and get to work hitting all the clubs in her new bag. Layla goes to a weekly junior golf clinic and we added a weekly range session as well for practice.

 

 

 

 

 

Looks

20 out of 20

 

Layla really liked the color of the clubs and I liked the look of the clubs as well. I was particularly impressed with the wedge as it has a nice shape that keeps the shape of a grownup blade wedge while adding some perceived forgiveness with the small cavity.

Sound

Score 15 out of 15

 

Layla is 7 year old beginner so the sound of hitting the ball is great to her. It’s when she swings and misses that she doesn’t care for the sound

 

 

Feel

Score 15 out of 15

 

Again, a 7 year old beginner can’t really discern a good feel or a bad feel of a golf club so again we will default to a 15 of 15 as the clubs, as far as I can tell, seem to be well made and were comfortable for Layla to play.

 

 

Basic Characteristics

Score 22 out of 25

 

The clubs performed well when Layla was able to putt a good strike on the ball. The grips are nice and the entire set has graphite shafts which makes them light enough for a beginning junior to swing.

 

The one area I think the club could be improved would be the putter. I think a mallet putter would help young players gain confidence and would be a nice option to have available. Layla said she likes her putter but also thought it would be cool to have a mallet putter like her left-handed sister now has in her bag.

 

 

Total Junior Score

Score 87 out of 90

 

 

 

 

Sponsor Evaluation

Score 9 out of 10

 

It’s been a fun few months working with Layla on her golf game. I can honestly say she is more enthusiastic about practicing now that she has a quality Junior set of clubs, and that enthusiasm hasn’t waned. She is starting to see positive results and asks to go to the range so she can practice more which is a positive sign.

 

I have been taking my daughters to junior golf clinics for over a year now and having a background in education I try to pay attention to what the instructors are teaching and also what type of equipment the kids are using and what works for them. I’ve seen many junior sets and I can honestly say the Wilson Profile Junior set is one of the best sets I’ve seen at its price point of $139.00 and rivals sets costing $100 more. For a seven year old just learning the game, Wilson included just the right amount of clubs to have them experience all aspects of the game; tee shots, hybrid and iron play, chipping, and putting, without overwhelming. Layla’s set is holding up well with only normal wear to the clubs.

P1100522.JPG

 

If I could change anything I’d like to see some sort of attachment that could make the blade putter look like a mallet so the child could choose which putter style works for them. I’d also love to see an adjustable length set of clubs, perhaps the grip section could be unscrewed with a longer grip section screwed on when the child grows. The rate in which children grow is always a concern leading parents to many times buy clubs for their child to “grow into” which only leads to frustration for a novice trying to learn the game with ill-fitting clubs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Final Score

96 out of 100

 

Overall, I believe Wilson has hit a home run with the Wilson Profile Junior line of clubs and for 7-9 year old the medium set is a great fit. For the price of a new wedge you can get your child a great set of clubs that will help them get more enjoyment out of the game.

Now I need to wrap up this review, Layla wants to hit some more balls.

And a terrific one it is.  She's adorable.   And wow what a full back swing and follow though...I'm very jealous.
This is going to be a fantastic thread to follow.  
Props to [mention=73629]GolfSpy STUDque[/mention] for pitching this testing for over a year and getting it done with the great folks at Wilson! 


Yeah, she really goes for it!
